Limbitrol Side Effects
Bloating, blurred vision, and drowsiness are some of the more commonly reported Limbitrol side effects. Those that are less common include nasal congestion, shakiness, and confusion. While side effects of Limbitrol usually don't require medical attention, some problems are potentially serious and should be reported to a healthcare provider. Notify your healthcare provider right away if you experience difficulty breathing, increased heart rate, or hallucinations.
As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Limbitrol® (chlordiazepoxide and amitriptyline); however, not everyone who takes the medication will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider.
